Last year, Sky announced a bunch of new features coming to Sky Q this year, including voice search, a personalised homepage and the ability to record six channels while watching a seventh. But it's just let slip two tantalising extra features that it hadn't previously mentioned.
The first is "Dolby Atmos-supported UHD content" – in other words, 4K content coupled with Dolby's latest surround sound tech. Which should make for an amazingly engrossing experience.
The two features were spotted in a presentation about the firm's financial results.
Sky's rival BT has already announced it will start broadcasting 4K Premier League matches with Dolby Atmos sound, so it could be said that Sky is following in its footsteps here. BT has no voice control functions, however, so Sky is ahead of its rival in this respect.
Sky also announced recently that from next year, it will offer its TV services without needing a satellite dish.
The bad news? Sky's prices are going up in March. Ah well, you win some, you lose some.
